When police pull over a person driving because of a traffic issue, they may pursue suspicions of other alleged crimes if they feel there is reason to suspect something else is going on. Recently in Tennessee, police pulled over a man for a broken tail light and ended the night by talking the man out of a pond where he fled. The man involved in this unusual incident is now facing DUI charges and other charges.
When police pulled the 27-year-old over, the officer reported smelling alcohol and observed a beer can in the car. When asked about it, the driver allegedly took off from the officer. The man then drove through a Walmart parking lot where he eventually stopped. However, he fled the car and jumped over a fence leading to a pond, into which he ran.
